The U.S. Supreme Court will consider Monday a conservative legal challenge targeting public sector unions when the justices take up a case brought by non-union teachers in California who object to being compelled to pay for collective bargaining.Such a ruling would apply in 25 U.S. states that do not already have what is known as "right-to-work" laws that prohibit workers from being forced to pay fees to a union.The teachers who joined the lawsuit are asking the nine justices to overturn a 1977 Supreme Court ruling that allowed public-sector unions to collect fees from workers who do not want representation as long as the money is not spent on political activities.
